Done. See <http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/PageTopStore> for the details.

The idea is to add to PageStore a new directory in which a second copy
of the page is kept in a different format. This allows for painless
migration between the two. The recipe also includes automagic handling
of updates and such, meaning that if you manually edit a file, your
changes get properly logged and timestamped by PmWiki.

The file format has the page meta information (creation time, last
editor, etc.) in a header using the same format as PageStore. These
are followed by a blank line, then the current page contents, exactly
as they're seen within PmWiki. The previous versions of tha page are
not included, these are only kept in the PageStore-format file.

Still to be done is plugging in an external app to handle page
searches using this new format and other such niceties.
